Zoom - How to set up a Course Room with Zoom in Canvas
This document describes how to set up an ongoing Zoom room for your course.
If you want to set up an ongoing, fixed url, fixed ID Zoom room that can be joined at any time for your course, please follow these simple steps. Once created this room will functionally be equivalent to the Course Room that Blackboard Collaborate Ultra would automatically set up in every Canvas course.
- First, select Zoom in your Course Navigation Bar.
- Select Schedule a New Meeting in the upper right of the screen
- Enter a descriptive title, such as Math 101 Course Room
- Check the box next to Recurring meeting. Then, under Recurrence select NoFixed Time.
- If you want students to be able to use the room without you or another instructor being present, check the box next to Enable join before host.
